No two adults age in exactly the same way, but we know that paying attention to the 4Ms (Matters Most, Medications, Mind, and Mobility) provide high-quality, age-friendly care for all older adults.
The Southeast Texas Geriatric Workforce Enhancement Program (SETxGWEP) is proud to offer the following educational activities to help older adults, their families and the wider community learn about the best care for aging adults.
Education from the SETxGWEP is developed through the financial support of the Health Resources Services Administration and is always available without cost.
